Steph Curry got to celebrate his 28th birthday by only having to play 3 quarters in a 125-107 beatdown on the Pelicans. During those 3 quarters, the birthday boy racked up 27 points, 5 boards, 5 dimes and 4 more 3-pointers – including the falling out of bounds one above.  What made that 3-pointer so great was Leandro Barbosa passing on what should have been a high % shot to get the ball to Curry for what normally is a very, very low % shot. But, we are talking about Curry, who seems to somehow get better and better every single season…month….day.

“I hope to keep getting better, that’s the mission, and I’ll never be satisfied with where I’m at,” Curry said after the win. “I always want to find different ways to improve. I guess I’m officially in my prime, but we’ll see how far this thing can go.”
